Ulun Danu Temple

Sunrise at the temple,

Celebration of a new day,

Prayers are chanted,

Thankfulness sent to heaven,

Hopes are brought forward.

Sunrise brings warmth for the day,

Taking turn with the nights coldness,

At the Bedugul Lake.

So do life …

[Lake Bedugul, 2013]

Ulun Danu Temple At Dawn

Early morning at the twilight zone,

Dawn is the time to enjoy,

Beatiful lights of the nature,

Such as the beauty high in the Bedugul lake,

Where Ulun Danu Temple was.

Bali Ubud - Iksa Menajang

As the boy grows

The times he will remember

Is the joys of life

A time shared with his father

Playing in the field

Releasing kites that will fly high

As he will fly away too

Jatiluwih Sunrise - Iksa Menajang

Early in the morning

The paddy fields glowing

As the sun ray hits them

Yellow as gold

Sign that harvest is near

All the hardwork to be paid off

Note for those who love to see landscapes, the two mountain seen near the sun (Mount Batur and Mount Agung) is only seen from this side until around 10 am; afterthat they are not able to be seen anymore. Funny but true.

Catatan:

Foto HDR ini diolah dari 5 frame dengan base pada ISO 100, f/22, 1/8.

Pengolahan menggunakan Photomatrix Pro dengan pilihan proses Contrast Optimizer Tone Mapping. Belajar dari RC Concepcion di Kelby Training, maka pada slider strength digeser ke 100, untuk tone compression di geser ke kanan sampai diperoleh tonal yang menarik. Sedangkan slider lain hanya untuk memperkuat hasil saja. Selanjutnya pengolahan menggunakan Photoshop.
